High-level biomedical research

Logo de l'IRIBThe complementary skills of clinicians, biologists and chemists are being used to develop high-level bio-medical research focused on understanding the pathophysiology of diseases and the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic tools.

The stakeholders of certified biomedical research are currently grouped within the Biomedical Innovation and Research Institute (IRIB) in Rouen.

An international reputation gained around 5 lines of research


  • Neuronal and neuroendocrine differentiation, neurosecretion
  • Neuroendocrine tumours and glial tumours
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Perinatal neurological disability

Genetics – Cancer – Immunology

  • Cancer Genetics and lymphomas
  • Micro-environment – cancer – reproduction
  • Muscle, joint and skin autoimmune diseases

Cardiovascular – Nutrition and digestive diseases

  • Heart failure
  • Endothelial pathologies
  • Vascular protection and improvement of the cardiac contractile function

Nutrition and digestive diseases

  • Intestinal and chronic inflammatory bowel diseases
  • Eating disorders
  • Dysfunction of the gut-brain axis

Diagnostic and Therapeutic Innovation – Valuation
